Big Watab Trip!!

9 posts in this topic

Thanks to the few guys who responded to my last posting...I'll definately try those tips. Less than a week I'll be trout/walleye hunting on Big Watab in St. Joes, MN!!

Has anyone been out there lately? This will be my first trip in about 6-7 years...does it get busy because of the trout opener?

Any info would be appreciated, and I'll be sure to give everyone an update. Until then I'll be slaying the crappies in Duluth, MN.

Spent Fri and Sat on Watab. We caught a few pan fish on Friday, but they weren't jumping out of the hole. Caught a few pike too. One guy that was with did catch a walleye. No trout, and never saw one on the camera. Lots of ice and ice houses.

I was out there last week also. I had the same situation, there are way better lakes to fish right now. How many houses were out there? I didn't see many

Stopped by Watab on Sunday for an hour during midday slow point in hopes of snagging a trout or two. Caught nothing, saw some fish on flasher, most likely sunnies or possibly crappies. No takers. People driving everywhere on lake from what I saw. Lot of activity and I bet there were roughly 50-60 houses on the lake while I was out there.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.

      I've never used boards, what are the best boards to use with braid? I'll be using them on Superior and for eyes inland... I've heard the offshore ones need their clips upgraded to use with braid.

      Walleye, just make it look like you are fishing for crappies.

      Yup had my favorite sucker fishing spot get posted a couple years back, because of slobs...I'll never understand it.

      Trout! Although, I don't think there are too many (if any, at all?) trout streams in the Ely area.
